Program Description M.P.S.:Cybersecurity:
The MPS is designed to prepare computer science, information systems, and other technical professionals to fill management and leadership roles in cybersecurity.

Coursework includes a blend of management/legal/business courses with more technically focused courses.
Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies: Cybersecurity Strategy and Policy:
This four-course graduate certificate can be completed in a year. Because these courses are not technical, this program is available to students with a variety of undergraduate backgrounds. Students may choose to take this certificate by itself, or they may take this certificate and then later complete the master's. If a student is accepted into the M.P.S.: Cybersecurity, all four certificate courses count toward that degree. .
